Excursions in the Marine Park

Excursions to the Marine Park

The Zakynthos Marine Park (Greek: Εθνικό Θαλάσσιο Πάρκο Ζακύνθου), was established on 22 December 1999 as the first marine national park in Greece. It covers an area of 135 Km² and is home to Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtles.

The only way to explore the area is by renting a boat or booking an excursion. In the park, you will have the opportunity to observe Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtles and swim in the scenic caves that are typical of this area. Our tours are designed for you to enjoy the beauty of the marine park, swim at Marathonisi Island and inside the caves, and observe Loggerhead turtles swimming in their natural environment, all in compliance with WWF regulations.

Our excursions to the Marine Park use a 22-passenger catamaran, perfect for couples, families and friends looking for a more personalized tour, and with a 140-passenger boat, suitable for large groups and agencies. The prices of our excursions to the Zakynthos Marine Park are within everyone’s reach!

If you want to sail freely, spending half a day in the pristine waters of the Marine Park and choose where to swim, you can either rent a boat that doesn’t require a boating licence for your own exclusive use or rent a private boat with captain for greater comfort.

If you are looking for a luxury solution, you can visit the rental section of this site.
